solved: german keyboard layout with ALT GR

Postby RogerWilco77 on Wed Dec 19, 2012 5:26 pm

Hello,

I have installed Mint 14 KDE rc.
Normally I use a German keyboard layout with "no dead keys".
I guess I selected this during installation, but now my layout is wrong.
For example all keys I normally access with Alt Gr are in the wrong location. The @ is on the letter "L" istead of "Q".

I tried (slight translation discrepancies back to English are possible):
Applications -> settings -> system settings -> keyboard

I can select a lot of keyboard types here, but nothing like "german without dead key".
What am I missing? Just things like "generic keyboard with 102 keys", etc...

Thanks for your help.

PS:
I guess it is related to "XKBVARIANT="mac_nodeadkeys""

Code: Select all
axel@mambo ~ $ cat /etc/default/keyboard
# Check /usr/share/doc/keyboard-configuration/README.Debian for
# documentation on what to do after having modified this file.

# The following variables describe your keyboard and can have the same
# values as the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant and XkbOptions options
# in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="de"
XKBVARIANT="mac_nodeadkeys"
XKBOPTIONS=""

# If you don't want to use the XKB layout on the console, you can
# specify an alternative keymap.  Make sure it will be accessible
# before /usr is mounted.
# KMAP=/etc/console-setup/defkeymap.kmap.gz

ok, quite simple solution:

wrong: XKBVARIANT="mac_nodeadkeys"
right: ........................="nodeadkeys"
